We are writing these things so our joy may be complete.
1 John 1:4
We must elevate the belief and never the believer. The gospel does not need help from any person. The gospel speaks for itself. If God wanted He would make the stones cry out to praise His Name (Luke 19:40). Many Christians have a desire to draw near to people who represent the belief. We cannot cling to people who represent Christ. “For false Christs and false prophets will arise…so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect” (Matt. 24:24). Never look at an example of a Christian in the world without a comparison of Christ who is the Word. We rejoice in our belief that Jesus Christ is Savior.
Pray to rejoice in your belief.
